These are the instructions to install Biomes O' Plenty on a Minecraft client or Linux server.

Client[]

To install Biomes O' Plenty on your client, follow these instructions (skip to step 4 if you already have forge installed).

  1. Download the recommended version of Forge that corresponds to the Minecraft version you are using.
  2. Open the Forge installer you just downloaded and follow the instructions to install it.
  3. Run your Forge client once, so it generates some files and folders. This will also confirm that your Forge installation worked.
  4. Download Biomes O' Plenty from CurseForge or Modrinth, and save it to the %appdata%\.minecraft\mods folder. (make sure it is the right mc version, or it will not work!)
  5. Run your Minecraft Forge client. If all goes well, you should end up at the Minecraft main menu with no errors or crashes.
  6. If you wish to customize your BOP experience, you can alter the configuration, which generates in %appdata%\.minecraft\config\biomesoplenty after you run BOP the first time. Everything you need to know about modifying the configuration is documented on this page.

NOTE: If you are using BOP 1.18+, you need to also install TerraBlender here.

Server (Linux)[]

To install Biomes O' Plenty on your Linux server (e.g. Debian or Ubuntu), follow these instructions. Make sure that your Minecraft server is shut down while you follow these instructions. If you haven't installed Minecraft at all on your server yet, Scarlz's tutorial is to be recommended. Please note: the following steps have been written for and tested with Minecraft 1.11. Future versions may require adjustments.

  1. Download the recommended installer version of Forge that corresponds to the Minecraft version you are using (yes, that's for Windows).
  2. On a Windows machine, execute the Forge installer you just downloaded, select "Install server" and choose a temporary target directory, e.g. a new directory on your desktop.
  3. Download the version of Biomes O' Plenty which corresponds to your versions of Minecraft and Forge, and save the jar file into the mods directory inside your directory.
  4. Upload the entire content of your temporary directory to the server, right into the Minecraft directory. The original Minecraft jar file may be replaced, you might want to create a backup of it first.
  5. On your server, open the file server.properties with a text editor of your choice (e.g. vim), and edit the line level-type=DEFAULT to say level-type=BIOMESOP instead; save and close the file.
  6. Finally, run the server as usual, with the only difference that now you'll run the forge jar file instead of the original Minecraft jar file, e.g. with: java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar forge-x.xx.x-xx.xx.x.xxxx-universal.jar nogui
  7. If you wish to customize your BOP experience, you can alter the configuration, which is located in your Minecraft directory on your server at /config/biomesoplenty after you run the server the first time. Everything you need to know about modifying the configuration is documented on this page.

NOTE: If you are using BOP 1.18+, you need to also install TerraBlender here.

Using MultiMC[]

If you are using MultiMC, this is how to install the mod.

  1. First, open MultiMC, and either make a new instance or open an existing one.
  2. Download Biomes O' Plenty on Curseforge.
  3. Click edit instance and go to loader mods, then click add.
  4. Select the Biomes O' Plenty file.
  5. Install forge if you do not have it already.

NOTE: If you are using BOP 1.18+, you need to also install TerraBlender here.
